Peru's traditional exports totaled US$2.826 billion in April 2018, a 21.4% rise from the same month last year, Central Reserve Bank (BCR) informed.

According to the issuing entity, this expansion was mainly explained by greater foreign sales of copper, zinc, and natural gas.

Furthermore, the exports value of traditional products went up by 21.3% in the analyzed month.

Said positive result was supported by an increase in the prices of copper (+32.8%), crude oil and derivatives (+27.8%), zinc (24.8%), and gold (+5.4%). 

On the other hand, traditional exports volume grew 0.1% due to higher shipments of zinc (+50.6%), coffee (+13.6%), and copper (+11.2%).
